Saute the aromatics for about two minutes, and add 1 pound of lean ground turkey meat. Season with 1 teaspoon of garlic powder, 1 teaspoon of cumin powder and salt to taste. Brown the meat for a few minutes until the meat is fully cooked. Add 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and 1/2 cup of chicken broth to the pan, and simmer on low for about five minutes after stirring to combine. Add 1 1/2 cups of precooked rice to the sauce to finish the filling.

Next, cut three large sweet red bell peppers in half lengthwise, and clean out the seeds from the insides. Place the pepper halves into a greased baking dish, and spoon the meat mixture into each, filling as much as possible. Pour about 1/2 cup of chicken broth into the bottom of the pan, seal the dish with aluminum foil, and bake for about 35 minutes in an oven preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Top with shredded cheddar cheese before serving.
